Origin: Rural areas of Northern France
Description: Generally the Follett are invisible. For those who have seen them there are two main descriptions – a tiny old man dressed as a jester or a tiny man dressed in a red coat and britches with long hair and beard brandishing a teeny little sword. I like that later myself. Personal preference only.
Disposition: The Follett are not the friendliest of creatures. Actually, they are quite nasty. They invade homes in the French countryside throwing pots and pans and sticks on the residents. They like to pester spinning women and rub cattle’s skin raw (yeah, weird, but a major concern for a farmer!) They also like to make crude jokes.
Now if a person can resist losing their patience and flying into a rage at this vicious little bastard, the Follett will act as a House Faerie, completing chores and tending to the cattle.
